From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 02/01/08 - "lemon juice":
The local restaurant was so sure that its host was the strongest man around that they offered a standing $1000 bet. The host would squeeze a lemon until all the juice ran into a glass, and hand the lemon to a patron. Anyone who could squeeze one more drop of juice out would win the money. Many people had tried over time (weight lifters, longshoremen, etc.), but nobody could do it.
Then one day, this scrawny little man came in, wearing thick glasses and a polyester suit, and said in a tiny, squeaky voice, 'I'd like to try the bet.'
After the laughter had died down, the host said 'OK,' grabbed a lemon, and squeezed away. Then he handed the wrinkled remains of the rind to the little man. But the crowd's laughter turned to total silence as the man clenched his fist around the lemon and not just one but six drops fell into the glass!
As the crowd cheered, the host paid the $1000, and asked the little man, 'What do you do for a living? Are you a lumberjack, a weight lifter, or what?'
The man replied, 'No, I work for the IRS.'
GIGGLES!!! Thanks again, Shari!
From Sepi Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 02/02/08 - "Overused mouse":

From My #2 Daughter-in-Law, Bethany Winona Harty (Siuslaw HS, OR - '94) of OH - 02/03/08 - "RE: 02/03/08 - Happy Groundhog Day":
Pictures of that cursed
groundhog remind me of our time in Chicago, and the elusive woodchuck!
The one living under our house. Surely you remember my rants and raves about him. Especially the day that I thought I would do Brent (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '90 - of OH) a favor, and run over him. My girly side won over, and I swerved at the last second. Couldn't do it. Or the time Brent went after him with the shotgun. So funny. He'd get this crazy look in his eye (Brent, not the woodchuck) every time he sensed the thing was near. He'd give us that, "Shush, I'm hunting wabbits" look, and dart into the house to find something, anything to kill the little bugger with. A shovel, a gun, a big stick. Whatever was near. I don't know if he ever got him or now, but I guess, looking back on it all, it added some spice to our lives.
Too bad there's gonna be more winter. I'm looking forward to spring :( Maybe the nasty little beast was wrong ....
Bethany, you are so funny! Your woodchuck pictures are adorable, too! You made my whole day, but then, you often do - thanks so much!
From Joanne Kates Roos of VA - 02/03/08 - "RE: 02/03/08 - Happy Groundhog Day":
Funny! I agree! Thanks for the laugh.
Thanks, Joanne - I'm glad you enjoyed it!!
From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 02/03/08 - "RE: 02/03/08 - Happy Groundhog Day":
I should certainly say so, Domi - thanks!
From Jim Cobb ('66) of VA - 02/03/08:

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 02/03/08 - "A Video":
Certainly, Shari - and thanks for this beautiful video! I personally have only been inside eight LDS Temples - Salt Lake, Washington, Chicago, Portland, St. Louis, Columbia, Raleigh, and Boston - but of course, there's no such thing as an ugly Temple!

Jerry Blanchard (62) of Va.
Gas Stations Of Yesteryear
Back when life was much simpler and gas was 18-25 cents a gallon!!
(or there about) and as low as 17 cents during gas wars.
Yeah . . . I remember!
And with a fill-up you got the gas pumped for you,
your windshield cleaned, oil and fluids checked, tires checked,
a free map, if you wanted it, and greeted in ENGLISH !!!
Yeah! I remember!!!
Enjoy Your Days & Love Your Life.... Because...."Life is a journey to be savored."
Thanks, Jerry, I remember them quite fondly, too!
Y'all take care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER! We'll Always Have Buckroe!
Love to all, Carol

Memories Are Made of This
Written by Terry Gilkyson, Richard Dehr, and Frank Miller,1955
"The most popular version was recorded by Dean Martin and the The Easy Riders (who consisted of Gilkyson, Dehr, and Miller); another version was recorded by Gale Storm. The Martin version reached #1 on the Billboard chart in 1956. Tim Rice has stated that the Everly Brothers version of this is the most perfect pop song ever. After the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, the song was adapted into the "Honvágy-dal" (The Song of Homesickness), used as an unofficial anthem for refugees scattered around the world. Recorded by Ida Boros, it became a cultural phenomenon and a sign of protest against the communist government. For an impression of Dean Martin, American tenor Mario Lanza sang "Memories Are Made of This" in a sequence of impressions that included other popular singers of the era in his 1958 movie Seven Hills of Rome."
Sweet, sweet memories you gave-a me
you can't beat the memories you gave-a me
Take one fresh and tender kiss
Add one stolen night of bliss
One girl, one boy
Some grief, some joy
Memories are made of this
Don't forget a small moonbeam
Fold in lightly with a dream
Your lips and mine
Two sips of wine
Memories are made of this
Then add the wedding bells
One house where lovers dwell
Three little kids for flavor
Stir carefully through the days
See how the flavor stays
These are the dreams you will savor
With His blessings from above
Serve it generously with love
One man, one wife
One love through life
Memories are made of this
Memories are made of this
